Introduce game: What does a shepherd do? What happens if one lamb is missing?
What Lamb Is Missing?
Directions: Students sit in a group on the floor. One student is “It” and must turn around and hide their eyes. Another student is picked by the teacher and they go outside of the room. “It” then must guess what lamb is missing. Whoever was the lost lamb is now “It”.
The Lost Sheep Hide and Seek- A great activity game to go with the Bible story. (Super Bible Game Book by Linda Standke, page 146 for game piece and page 146 for directions).
Name Rhythm- This game will allow your students to share a unique thing about themselves with the group, as well as help students see that Jesus knows them each by name. (The Encyclopedia of Bible Games for Children’s Ministry by Group Publishing, page 221).
